involvement in this. they're going to broker a deal. this has been a tradition of the u.s. to come in when tensions flare to work something out and hopefully a lasting peace not one that just lasts a couple of years. >> first thing that struck me when i saw that hillary clinton with benjamin netanyahu was it didn't matter that netanyahu backed romney. all of that time wasted, all of that money wasted perhaps. speaking today with netanyahu. >> president obama asked me to come to israel with a very clear message. america's commitment to israel's security is rock solid and unwavering. that's why we believe it is essential to de-escalate the situation. the rocket attacks from terrorist organizations inside gaza on israeli cities and towns must end and a broader calm restored. >> so you hear hillary clinton there. israel saying some of the conditions that they want out of this cease fire would be having no more rockets fired out of gaza. soldiers patrolling the frontier would, in fact, not be attacked. weapons, stockpiles
an active involvement, and they're going to be there to broker a deal. this has been the tradition of the u.s. role to come in and work something out and hopefully a lasting peace not something that lasts just a couple of years before they do this again. >> the first thing that struck me again when i heard this was going on, and that hillary clinton was meeting with netanyahu, it did not matter that netanyahu backed romney. all that time wasted, all that money wasted, perhaps but he still has america at his back. here is hillary clinton. >> president obama asked me to come to israel with a very clear message. america's commitment to israel's security is rock solid and unwavering. that's why we believe it is essential to de-escalate the situation in gaza. the rocket attacks inside gaza on israeli cities and towns must end, and a broader calm restored restored. >> so you hear hillary clinton there, israel saying some of the conditions they want out of this cease-fire is no more rockets fired out of gaza, soldiers patrolling the frontier would not attack and weapons stock pile would not be rele
. but back in the united states senator john mccain called for the u.s. to offer its own mediator to try to bring out a permanent truce. >> the united states of america has got to push as hard as we can to resolve this israeli/palestinian issue. so many events hinge on making that process go forward. find someone even as high ranking, frankly, as former president bill clinton to go and be the negotiator. i know he'd hate me for saying that, but we need a person of enormous prestige and influence to have these parties sit down together as an honest broker, but we have a lot of work to do to regain some credibility because we're crumbling all over the middle east. >>> any moment now president obama is set to touch down in cambodia, the second of two asian nations that no sitting u.s. president has visited before. first myanmar, a country rapid by transitioning from years of brutal military rule. president obama met with government officials as well as opposition leader aung san suu kyi who spent decades under house arrest and subsequent election to parliament. myanmar, also known as burma,

major u.s. allies. france and england. it was a fight over control of the suez canal. the american president at that time, in 1956, was, of course, dwight eisenhower. republican. he was running for re-election against the democratic candidate that year, adlai stevenson. talk about an october surprise. that year it was eight days before election day. both candidates are forced to deal with an unexpected and genuine giant foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the attack ahead of time. because ike had made clear to our allies, to england specifically, that he didn
-fire is going to be. >> tim, this is tricia rose. let me ask you a question. to what degree can the u.s. function legitimately as a neutral honest broker. when you look at the funding. when you look at the iron dome and the casualty rates it raises questions to me about whether or not the cease-fire can be held together when the u.s. one side. >> the united states simply does not deal with hamas directly. it deals with it through egypt. it sees it as a terrorist entity. you're right, israel and the united states are close allies, and the united states by 2015 will have dedicated close to $1 billion if authorization bills hold, they will have dedicated close to $1 billion to the iron dome system. so that's why the egyptian role is so important in all this. egypt acts as the conduit between american interest and diplomacy into the gaza strip. >> michael: you can follow tim mak on tim kmak on political could. we switch to hardcore politics. yes it's the first annual tyt turkey pardon. should this turkey be saved? >> i have a deal for the president. a deal that i don't believe he can refuse

. a changeover in governments and, frankly, also people have suspected for the last few years that the u.s. is disengaging from the region. president obama and secretary clinton are in asia which is this pivot to asia. and soap i think that what the united states wants to see here, they want to see can we take morsi, a muslim brotherhood leader, and make him into a constructive leader and can we use this? >> speaking from your expertise, given his background, is that a plausible skcenario for morsi? >> we could put aside his background because his background says, no. he came up through the ranks of the muslim brotherhood. no one expected him to be president but now he is president and the question is, is he going to act as president of egypt with national interests in mind or the ideology? he's so far been leaning in the idea of pragmatism. >> even with the statement today, robin, go ahead. >> the most important meeting hillary clinton will have will be in cairo and what's been so fascinating as this crisis has evolved, the communication between president obama and president morsi almost
that got so much attention. but why were those warning signs from the libyan officials on the ground, u.s. officials in libya, why were those not taken more seriously perhaps or addressed in a different way. so part of all this attention is that kind of leverage. andrea? >> that's, of course, what is going to come up at confirmation hearings if she is nominated as the president we are told really wishes to follow up on. that is going to be the focus, part of the focus, of the nomination and confirmation hearings and another warning shot today from lindsey graham, look at what he had to say about a previous confirmational battle one that the republicans lost. >> well, i remember the john bolton episode pretty well. our democratic friends felt like that john boltton didn't have the information needed to make an decision about john bolten to be ambassador and democrats dug in their heels saying we're not going to vote, not going to consider this nomination until we get basic answers to our concerns. all i can tell you is that concerns i have are greater today than they were before. >> intere
republican critics and answer questions about the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. rice will sit down with senators john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayott. in recent days, senator mccain has softened his criticism as rice insists that she was relying on talking points from the intelligence community. last night, senator graham rejecting her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us and now we'll listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were told about a spontaneous event caused by video where a mob turned into a riot is less credible than ever. >> she reportedly called the meeting. seems like a smart move. what do you think? >> well, i think it's a smart move for john mccain to take the meeting. they're boxed in. this is not a figh

wrapping up the first trip to myanmar by a sitting u.s. president, chuck joins us now with the latest on the president's trip. >> well, good morning. i'm here in myanmar, a country that just a few years ago was virtually isolated from the world's community and now a united states president has visited the country, barack obama. he made a whirlwind 12 hours count when he landed and touched down he was greeted by a sea of folks here, some of them locals looked spontaneous. some of them uniformed schoolchildren, looked like it was very organized. but throngs of people hoping to catch glimpses of the motorcade. the president played a little bit of tourist, by the way. he stopped by a famous 2,000-year-old temple with a big buddha there. the president participating in a ceremony. >> i was dousing the flames. >> and then the president went to aung san sun kyi's house where the activist was under house arrest for years. the two of them after meeting behind closed doors with secretary of state hillary clinton in tow, by the way, they came out and spoke to a small group of reporters that were
, this was an all-important test of u.s.-egyptians relations following the arab spring. what's the grade? >> well, the grade is good. better than good. you have to be cautious, of course. you're talking about the middle east. but i think that it's remarkable, alex, really, to see the kind of praise that president morsi is receiving. even in those defiant speeches that ayman was referring to, hamas leaders, islamic jihad leaders, benjamin netanyahu's comments last night, secretary clinton's comments last night, president obama's praise, everybody has good things to say about morsi, who has now emerged not only as a can-do politician, but a power broker in the region. for instance, when the truce deal needed to be closed and clinton came to cairo, she spent hours with morsi and with his foreign minister, mohammed kamul, finding the compromise that israel and hamas could live with. mainly stop the hostilities today and negotiate the other demands later. alex? >> jim, thank you very much for that live report from cairo with the latest on the brokering of the truce. joining me now, former u.s. ambassa

world that came from the arab spring. and the u.s. is in this position where they are standing by israel, very clearly they have said that they support israel's right to defend itself. hillary clinton has met with the palestinian leader weather the egyptian president, with the israeli prime minister but not with hamas. that's going to continue to reverberate in the way that the president has dealings with the arab world going forward from this, and that's what they're looking at as they look forward to the next four years. >> the question, can she get this deal done or push it along. >> and she's dealing with a very different set of players. the playing field has changed dramatically. you have an egypt, tunisia that are no longer in the same position vis-a-vis israel. th then you have turkey, too. that's another sort of wild card where the relationship between israel and turkey deteriorated so much from 2010 to today that, you know, the u.s. really is in a position where they really can't take too many steps back from israel because it's more isolated now than it was even two years ago.
between the u.s. and israel will not change. what has changed is what colby address, and that is, the reality of the arab world. we no longer have mubarak in power in egypt, and that guaranteed to played a key role in dealing with israel. nina is absolutely right, the islamic jihad backed by iran is putting pressure in gaza, and on hamas itself. this has to stop. 1500 rocket attacks on an area slightly twice as large as washington d.c. on wednesday. and attacks within the suburbs of tel aviv and jerusalem are absolutely unacceptable. but i think the hope is this compound -- is this, barack obama has a political advantage because benjamin netanyahu is up for reelection and favored to win. but he was so obvious and so transparent in his support of mitt romney, all but endorsing him this year, i think there is a chance for a resolution. >> that is absurd. what resolution? hamas's charter declares that not only is israel illegitimate and has to be eradicated, but in the carter -- in the charter, jews are the cause of wars starting back to the french revolution. we're stock -- we are
the white house. now to the politics playing out over the aaattack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. senate leaders say they will now investigate the talking points given to u.n. ambassador susan rice and why they did not reflect cia findings shortly after the attack that was a terrorist-related incident. on "meet the press" senate intelligence committee chairperson dianne feinstein defended the house against allegations it changed the script for plital purposes ahead of the election. >> this whole process is going to be checked out. we're going to find out who made changes in the original statement. until we do, i really think it's unwarranted to make accusations. >> and joining me now is rachel smolk and michael smirkonish and jimmy williams. ray she will, let me start off with you. i want to play a couple of other clips from "meet the press." let me play lindsey graham, because what we heard from senator feinstein was a response to some of the comments made particularly by mr. graha miker. >> would this white house mislead people about american security events? i think they might. when t
, we're talking about what the u.s. gives, $2 billion annually, the imf has $4.8 billion in the reserve fund to help egypt and senator lindsey graham over the weekend was very forceful saying we are watching you. they know full well that aid will be cut off if they don't act accordingly trying to broker a peace deal, correct? >> i would say it's more than just trying to broker a peace deal. i think it's fulfilling its obligations. in the first sense its international obligations. one thing the president morsi understood is if hamas continued to do what it was doing and if the pressures on him led to him breaking the peace treaty with israel, then it wasn't just american assistance that would be put at risk. it would be all the assistance internationally. all the investment egypt would need. so he's putting egypt's needs first and foremost and that suggests that actually the economic imperfect it tiff is trumping the ideological imperatives and that's actually a positive sign for the future. >> with hillary clinton going to the region and with these positive signs that morsi has already
of these new governments. and you know, hamas is meant to be isolated by the u.s., and israel, they don't want anybody to have anything to do with the outside, even get fresh air. we saw arab leaders literally beating the door down to try to get into gaza first and stand shoulder to shoulder with hamas. so that is what they're saying publicly. the really unbelievable thing is how incredible egypt worked and got this deal. and everybody from the united states to hillary clinton to the israelis know that it is egypt, and the new islamist president, mohamed morsi and his government, who made this happen. >> christiane amanpour, thank you very much indeed. >>> coming next, rudy giuliani has more on the cease-fire and if it will hold. iversity of pho we're working with a growing list of almost two thousand corporate partners - companies like microsoft, american red cross and adobe - to create options for you. not only that, we're using what we learn from these partners to shape our curriculum. so that when you find the job you want you'll be a perfect fit. let's get to work. aya . >>> i would like
